Thought the supplemental was over. 🤨

ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports the Padres are finalizing a trade to acquire Dylan Cease from the White Sox.

Telling your team to trade for a player...always that one guy that's gotta ruin the league.

a nice start to the season getting the Padres week 1 who will have 20+ extra games worth of stats for the week 😆

Thank you for taking one for the team. 🙏

Maybe when the rest of us play him some of us will get an advantage in games played. 😏

My season is over.     Cardinals might lose 100.

Food for thought for next season....  expanding rosters?  maybe as simple as going to 30 total rounds (28 regular and 2 supplemental). Or do we like the constant rotation of exclusive players?  It's probably fairly inconsequential but might make some lives easier if we don't have to be on top of 30 add/drops per week. 

some teams just use 1 roster spot for the entirety of an exclusive  SP rotation

or do we feel this is a positive element of the geek homers chess game?

I think it's a good part of the homer process.  It can be a bit of a challenge when an owner might have to be away from their lineup for a while if they wanted to set it to auto-start but the teams that for the most par that do this seem to be the smaller market teams.  I could be wrong but it those teams that have lost pitchers to other teams in the real MLB and try to draft those guys that can't be dropped and then hope to "out-number-start" the competition and hope that the 1 or 2 pitchers don't get pummeled to kill their ERA/WHIP.

I assume everyone has the ap on their phone that makes daily transactions pretty easy

i don't think daily transactions are difficult, overall. Just seems like a lot of work for teams to be doing so many add drops... especially after the AS Supp when they lose 2 more exclusive roster spots. 

Granted adding 2 more roster spots at the start of the season won't have a huge impact on the daily turnover. 

was just a thought

what if we had so many rounds of exclusive only players, and other rounds that are either exclusive or draftable players?

Daily transactions suck on Yahoo.  I'll never understand why we must wait until after midnight on the west coast to drop a player who played earlier that day.  Can be tough sometimes when I'm working on the road in the middle of nowhere, often without cell coverage.

This can also be an issue, even on the east coast if you want to get your lineup ready for the next day. Pitchers who didn’t play are droppable but anyone who accrued stats that day is not.

I don’t think that solves the issue though (if this is even an issue at all) unless we are adding roster spots in general. 
 

i suggested 2 more draft rounds because it would bring us to an even 30 roster spots and those last 2 rounds added are most likely Going to be filled with exclusives anyway

Exactly.  I'm not on west coast time, so that makes it even more inconvenient.   I'm not staying up until 1:30am to make a move in a free league with all you strangers. 😆

I can say with confidence that I will lead the league in starts of exactly 5.2 IP.

it's been tough sledding so far this season.

I hope that Josh Lowe being back will help. Getting Taj Bradley back should also help. Also sounds like Jeffrey Springs may be back 1-2 months earlier than I even expected when I drafted him. 

Blake Snell has not panned out. Hopefully being shut down for a little and getting some minor league games under his belt will make a difference.

Team can't hit the ball, but managed to set the WHIP record. Could have had the ERA record also if I had held guys back today.

id like to make some trades, looking for an Ace, all players available except Soto and Judge

I cant fit Arraez, Cronenworth, Pham, Rooker all in the lineup everyday and all of them are crushing it

admittedly I dislike trading in this league. for a few reasons

1. part of the fun for me is trying to win with current and former Rays (aside from the supp guys)

2. most, if not all trades result in additional locked roster spots in a format where the flexibility to add/drop is so important. (especially for a franchise like Tampa)

as for the above, I also value pitching way more than hitting so an ace pitcher would need to return a stud hitter that I value more than the pitcher I am parting with. That's just personal philosophy though

Well my team  has sucked all year.  Without trading it will continue to suck.  Just trying to climb into a playoff spot at this point or not finish last.  Either would be a win.

My team is pretty much done.  I could be the first team in the history of our league to go from first to worst.
